Despite remarkable progress in the treatment of HER2+ breast cancer, management of this patient population continues to remain a challenge, both in the adjuvant and metastatic settings. An enhanced understanding of the treatment options available for HER2+ breast cancer patients in different settings is imperative to improving patient survival and quality of life. This activity consisting of didactic presentations and case illustrations will address treatment choices for HER2+ patients after trastuzumab progression; proposed mechanisms of resistance; combination treatment approaches; the role of anthracyclines and HER2-targeted agents in this population; and novel targeted agents under investigation, including mTOR inhibitors, antiangiogenic inhibitors, and HER2-targeted therapies.
Review a downloadable slide deck by Kathy D. Miller, MD, covering the most clinically relevant new data reported from Future Directions in the Treatment of Patients With HER2+ Breast Cancer: What Community Oncologists Need to Know.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists and other healthcare professionals involved in cancer care.
